On a work surface, cut each raw sausage patty in half and re-form into 16 mini patties.
In a nonstick skillet, cook sausage patties over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked through and browned, turning often. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

On a baking sheet, place 16 slices of bread, brush lightly on one side with olive oil and place oiled side down.
Broil for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Using tongs, flip bread slices.
Place 1 piece of mozzarella on each bread slice. Return to oven; broil for 1 minute longer. Transfer to a serving plate.
